    "Nvidia provided some updates on its near-term product strategy at a
    conference with financial analysts. While the first half of next year
    will focus on introducing updates for the current GeForce 7 generation
    - including the 90 nm model G71 with up to 750 MHz core clock and the
    entry-level chips G72 and G73 - the successor of the 7800 will be
    commercially available sometime in the second half of 2006.

    Not surprisingly, G80 will be tailored to run with Windows Vista and
    its Aero Glass functionality. The new graphics processor will
    transition to DirectX 10 and support Shader Model 4.0, Nvidia said. It
    was indicated that the current G7x generation will be available for
    some time, serving the entry-level and mainstream segment. G80 promises
    to bring a completely new processor architecture."

    Worry not, you have a video card that will carry you through until the
    successor to the G80 comes out, and thus when DirectX 10 will have more

    The bird in the hand is worth 2 in the bush. Or in this case ---
    with SLI --- 2 of the same birds in the hand may be worth
    the one in the bush. Anyway, regardless of hype to the contrary,
    your 7800GT is already fully compatible with the Vista 'bells and
    whistles'. Vista is formally scheduled to release on 31 August 2005
    and ALL of its fancy features must be accessible to the bulk of the
    then-mainstream video cards... the G80 or the R580 will hardly
    have seen the light of day by that time, and will certainly be
    nowhere near mainstream.
